    Computer is a HP laptop. Cd/dvd drive wont recognize a new cd in the drive, still say an old cd that has been removed is in the drive. Click on the drive in explorer and it cant access it. Any suggestions would be great, thanks.

    Have you rebooted the computer yet? This is a fairly typical issue on laptops with removable drive-bays. You can also try ejecting the drive in Windows and then removed and reseating the drive in the drive-bay, but rebooting should resolve it as well.

    has been rebooted multiple time, have also removed the drive from the drive-bay and reinserted. Neither has solved the problem.
